Pros

Good people, great benefits. I hugely enjoyed working with the colleagues I found there. The work was immensely satisfying. The layoff benefits were quite good.

Cons

No emphasis on training, poor career tracking, in an industry (defense) that is currently cratering. Like all big companies, they could be dense and bureaucratic.

Advice to Management

Diversify beyond the defense industry.

    Pros

    Raytheon is no different when compared to large government contractor companies (e.g. Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, Booz Allen Hamilton); salary and benefits are about the same.

    Cons

    By all indications, Raytheon does not promote personnel within the company; this comment has been expressed often during meetings advising management of problems.

    Advice to Management

    Consider promoting within not only at senior levels but throughout the personnel chain.
